Abstract

Starting from the fact that man is a social being, social environment has a big importance in the whole personality formation and development. Even though there are views according to which geographical and climate factors can also influence a person’s character, yet they are not the crucial ones. A social environment where the influence of: family, school, peers, mass media, different organizations and those alike is strongly expressed, enables the child as a biological being to gradually grow into a social being through gaining knowledge, habits, abilities etc. The pedagogical meaning of free time is not seen in the organisation of the free activities but in the different factors of institutional character, which more or less can help the shaping of free time with the creation of practical opportunities for its implementation. In this paper, the factors and their influence on the selection of the content of free time at high school respondents will be analysed. More precisely, we will analyse the respondents’ views and opinions about the factors which will determine the selection of free time content, if there are differences compared according to the influence, which of them appear as decisive factors and if there are gender differences from the aspect of the factors influence in the selection of free time activities and contents. In the problem researching process we decided to apply: inductive method, deductive method and comparison method.Keywords: free time, factors, school as a factor, family as a factor, social environment as a factor, student, free activities, culture and gender differences
